PROJECT OVERVIEW

Northern Health Initiatives is a project of True North Aid with the design to support the healthcare needs and requirements of individuals living in our Northern communities. In Canada, Indigenous peoples face the biggest health inequities compared to their non-Indigenous counter-parts. Our objective is to help close the gap between government and the people requiring services relating to their health. This includes access to medical equipment that they may not be able to completely afford or locate within their communities throughout northern Canada and access to specialized medical personnel.
